By using a durable, plastic, tooth-colored resin, dental bonding effectively restores the look of teeth that are minorly damaged, stained, misshapen, or in need of repair. At Oliverie Dental in Wall, NJ, we know that this procedure is a convenient, affordable, and efficient option for patients looking for a quick smile rejuvenation, and have seen the transformative effects of dental bonding time and time again.
What’s involved in the dental bonding process?
Preparing a tooth for bonding is quite simple, as freezing is only necessary in three situations: to fill a cavity, if the area to be repaired is near a nerve, or the tooth requires a drill to change its shape.
Before application, our dentist will ensure that the bonding colour used is as close as possible to your tooth shade. Once selected, a conditioning liquid is applied to the area to ensure that the resin adheres properly. Resin material is then placed and sculpted to suit your smile and bite before a bright light hardens it in place. Following any necessary smoothing and polishing to ensure the bonded area looks and feels natural and comfortable, the treatment is complete.
How do you care for teeth that have been bonded?
When caring for teeth that have received dental bonding, it’s important to avoid habits that can damage your teeth, including chewing on ice, biting your fingernails, or opening bags or containers with your teeth. It’s also wise to minimize your consumption of staining foods and drinks, and to avoid smoking.
